We used an obd scanner with the real time logging functionality to observe the signal coming from my sensors. They weren't far off failure. Fuel economy has improved 15-20 percent.

Car was throwing P0420 code. Replaced all 4 O2 sensors, then the car threw P0420 and P0430. Had both catalytic converters replaced, and all codes cleared and did not come back on. Passed NC emissions inspection. Radiator was damaged while replacing the front catalytic converter. When the radiator was removed, it had signs of leaking at the top on both driver and passenger sides, so it was going bad and would need replaced soon anyway. Passenger side CV boot was found to be extremely torn. Repair shop discovered that replacing the entire CV axle was cheaper than repairing the old axle so it was just replaced as a whole unit.

Sqeaking driver's side window. Shop lubed the "channel" to address it. Front passenger side door lock motor broken. The lock no longer goes up or down along with the other doors when auto door lock/unlock is used. Paid about $50 to diagnose; not paying approx $400 to repair. Living with problem.  Rear passenger side seatback (top side of the seatback) latch that allows the seatback to fold down and seat move forward has a broken wire or connection, so it doesn't work. Paid about $50 to diagnose but not paying the approx $200 to $400 to fix. AC lines that run from front to rear AC unit have a leak. Dealer recharged the system, which provides a temporary fix. New parts and fix will be about $500. Dealer only charged $100 when recharge was estimated at $170. Inside rear door panel won't stay in place, exposing wires underneath.
